We Help Injured Victims Maximize Their Compensation

A single act of negligence can cause serious injuries that last for months, years, or even a lifetime. While victims have to go through treatment and sort through the myriad of problems that arise after an accident, the responsible parties often continue conducting business as usual.

When another party’s negligence causes you harm, you have a legal right to pursue justice and compensation to hold them accountable for their misdeeds. The Sacramento personal injury attorneys at Wisner Baum have decades of experience helping injured victims obtain more than just accountability. Across all areas of practice, we have won over $4 billion for our clients.

Injured victims should never go it alone when pursuing a legal claim. A study conducted by the Insurance Research Council found that the average person receives a settlement 3.5-times larger when they retain a personal injury lawyer to represent their interests. Let us do the talking for you so you can focus on what is most important—regaining your health.

How to Find a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

We understand how difficult it is for injured victims to decide which attorney they should hire to represent them. Above all else, you should feel comfortable with the communication you have with your lawyer and confident that your lawyer has the experience needed to win your case and maximize your compensation.

Some questions you should ask a potential personal injury lawyer include:

  • How long has the attorney been litigating personal injury cases?
  • Does the attorney have experience negotiating settlements with insurance companies?
  • What are some examples of cases that he or she has handled that are similar to your case?
  • Can the attorney point to results in cases that are similar to yours?

It is also a good idea to read an attorney’s client reviews on Google, Yelp, and on their website to ensure that they are the best personal injury lawyer for your case. If others that have been in a similar situation to yours were happy with the service a lawyer provided, that should give you some measure of confidence that your case would be in good hands if you decided to hire him or her.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Under state law, Sacramento accident victims can seek compensation from the negligent, at-fault party through a personal injury lawsuit. Some type of injury, minor or severe, must have been sustained.

A few examples of injuries that may qualify for a personal injury claim include:

  • Amputation
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Vision or hearing loss
  • Eye or facial injuries
  • Birth-related injuries
  • Cancers from toxic exposure
  • Burns of the second, third, and fourth degree

Note that personal injury victims must also prove that “damages” which may include pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.

How Much is My Case Worth?

Accident victims harmed by negligence deserve full and fair compensation. Insurance companies try to cut deals with victims to limit their liability. Often, they may claim they are doing you a favor by offering you a low settlement. In our experience, it is always best to have a lawyer to at least review a settlement offer before you sign anything.

As mentioned, the Insurance Research Council conducted a study finding that people who hire a personal injury lawyer to represent their interests receive settlements that are 3.5-times larger on average when compared to people who do not use an attorney.
